LEAD Virtual Training Program

Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD) is a six-month interactive, virtual program that provides supervisors with fundamental concepts, tools and skills related to: (1) what it means to be a supervisor, (2) effective communication, (3) creating an ethical, diverse, and welcoming environment, (4) managing staff performance, (5) maximizing employee potential and growth through coaching, and (6) building high performance teams.

Included in this six-month program are 22 (two hours each) live virtual learning sessions; peer cohorts to enhance group learning and mentoring; and assignments between learning sessions to put new ideas and strategies to work in your role as a supervisor.

You may register for this program in Workday. View the course description and dates, and register as soon as possible. These sessions are expected to fill up quickly and are on a first come first served basis. If you register for a program that is already full, you will be placed on a waitlist and automatically be registered if a space becomes available. LEAD participation and program expectations can be viewed here.
